Developments at these three material assets in which we have meaningful economic interests has already generated a steady stream of news flow during 2020, which can be expected to continue throughout the remainder of the year and beyond.

'The past six months, and the subsequent period to this Half Yearly Report, has seen significant progress and positive developments that augurs well for the execution of our strategy in delivering material growth in the medium term and achieving our goal of building a sustainable, UK onshore focused, mid-tier conventional hydrocarbon producer.

'The Board remains both confident and optimistic and the future of Union Jack remains bright.'
